  1. Actually, this problem happened to me again and it turns out I CAN edit the properties with the mouse, I just cannot see the selection marks so I don't know where to click to stretch, rotate, skew, etc. So everything seems to work fine, except I cannot see the indications that show if the object is selected or not. Weird. So I'm pretty sure it's a bug. Hopefully it will get patched soon. I have similar issues. I don't think my issue is with my mouse at all. If I save and reopen, the problem goes away (So it's not serious, just annoying). I will try to analyze the issue furthe
  2. So I have been recently having an issue with Affinity Designer, and I don't know if anyone else has had this issue (Please share if you did) but randomly when I am working on projects, I suddenly loose the ability to edit objects (Which is kinda important considering its a vector editor)... But suddenly, I won't be able to do anything with objects except edit their properties using the studio tabs. I mean, I can select the objects, but the selection indicator won't show up, and I can't drag it around. The object will be selected on the layers panel, but no other indication shows it is selected
  3. Nevermind! I fixed it! Yay! I'll list my process here just in case anyone else has issues with this! Even if you have spell checking enabled, you have to set you language to whatever language you use IN THE CHARACTERS TAB. To open this tap, go to [Text > Show character] and then in the character tab that opens, expand the language options on the bottom to be the language you use. For me it was originally set to "Unknown" before I fixed that! Then set the spell checker to work however you want, and voilĂ ! It should now work.
  4. So I know that there should be a spell checker implemented in AD, but for whatever reason I cannot get it to work for the life of me. I have made sure my language is set to what I use and I have repeatedly toggled off and on all of the spell checker settings with no yield. It also won't detect any errors in the spell checker options panel either. What is going on? AD is really amazing but it's just a huge pain if the spell checker isn't working to try to do any text rich designs. Any help? Is there something I missed? Can this be fixed? Thanks. UPDATE: I found out how to fix thi
  5. So I've been using Affinity Designer for a few days (Just the trial version to test it out) and I am LOVING it. I intend to transition from Inkscape to this soon. It's really smooth to use and just feels less like a mechanical process, and more like art. So, Affinity has been an amazing program so far, but I have a few suggestions to make it better, or features to add. First of all, there should be node alignment options (I am attaching a file to demonstrate what I mean. Inkscape has this, but Affinity doesn't, unfortunately.) I just realized I can manually input x and y coordinates
  6. Yes, an inset path feature would be extremely nice. In fact, if you wanted it to be dynamic like Affinity seems to be based on, Inkscape had a dynamic offset/inset feature that worked nicely. However, an. option to keep angles the same instead of rounding them would be nice as well. However, you could probably achieve the same effect using the curves of an object (Make a duplicate, make the curve, expand it and then add/subtract it from the original shape) but it takes quite a while to do...
  7. Thanks! Adjusting the pressure manually will be very helpful. Anyways, I'll be sure to mention the other features in the feature requests. I am a huge fan of what Affinity is so far, but it just seems to be missing a few details I wish it had. About the node alignment, node snapping isn't what I meant - I was looking for a feature where I could align nodes to each other the same way I can align shapes to each other. Below, I found a GIF of someone using the feature in Inkscape. Thanks again!
  8. By the way, I am using Affinity Designer Trial version, so I don't own the actual program yet.
  9. I was wanting to align nodes, but there didn't seem to be an ability to align them relative to each other on the same curve. I have been using Inkscape, and I wanted to purchase Affinity designer, but there seems to be a few things that don't seem to be there that I wish there was, including the ability to align nodes. It would be nice if there was an "Insert node at middle point" to insert new nodes right between two existing nodes on the same curve. Is there any way to do this? Also, I find that manipulating nodes doesn't offer a lot of precise control. Is there a way to move bezie
